Player Ratings as scratchy Reds win 4-1 to make Champions League semi

How did that end 4-1? Well, you could argue Liverpool outclassed Porto in both penalty areas, and thoroughly deserved that result. And you'd be able to present a justifiable argument. But for large parts of that game, it just didn't look like Liverpool were going to win 4-1. Sadio Mané put the Reds on their way with a VAR-overturned goal, after the referee had initially disallowed it for offside. Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk put the gloss …
Divock Origi discusses playing his part in Reds squad's push for glory

Divock Origi discusses playing his part in Reds squad's push for glory

Liverpool's Belgian striker Divock Origi has spoken about the role he has appeared in for Jurgen Klopp's Reds in recent weeks. The former Lille player has started just three games in the Premier League this season, however, he has begun to be used more from the bench by Klopp in recent weeks. No-one will forget Origi's 96th-minute winning goal in the derby at Anfield in early December after coming on as a late substitute. Origi also scored Liverpool's third goal …
What's going on with Xherdan Shaqiri?

What's going on with Xherdan Shaqiri?

Many thought he was almost certain to start against Fulham on Sunday, but when Adam Lallana was included in Klopp's starting XI, the recent whispers around what is going on with Xherdan Shaqiri grew just that little bit louder. The Alpine Messi was not so long ago enjoying his best spell since joining Liverpool in the summer, scoring six goals and providing two assists in 11 games over the winter period, but his form then seemed to drop and his …
Everton 0-0 Liverpool: What went wrong?

Everton 0-0 Liverpool: What went wrong?

A goalless draw at Old Trafford last weekend meant Liverpool's once-comfortable lead at the top of the Premier League table had been whittled down to nothing. They no longer had any margin for error. But it was a case of mistakes aplenty in the Merseyside Derby, and now the title race is out of their hands. The Reds preserved their 17th clean sheet with relative ease, but paid for a lack of creativity and, most of all, composure. In truth, …
Divock Origi: Does He Have a Liverpool Future?

Divock Origi: Does He Have a Liverpool Future?

He's had a bit of a tough time of things over the last two seasons has Divock Origi. After enjoying a relatively successful start to his Liverpool career under Brendan Rodgers and then perhaps the best time in a Liverpool shirt at the start of Jürgen Klopp's reign saw him being touted as one for the future. Some of his goals in the 2015/16 season, particularly those crucial ones en route to the Europa League final, made him a real …
The Reds' possible starting eleven against Everton this Sunday

The Reds' possible starting eleven against Everton this Sunday

Is this how Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp will line The Reds up for the Merseyside derby at Everton this weekend? Liverpool and Everton played out an extremely tight and tense game at Anfield back in early-December. A 96th-minute winner from super-sub Divock Origi gave Liverpool a priceless 1-0 victory and started Klopp's men on an eight-game winning streak in all competitions. 2019 has proved a tougher proposition so far for Liverpool, however. Yet, on Wednesday night, Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah and …
Liverpool 5-0 Watford: Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 5-0 Watford: Who was man of the match?

After a truly awful performance against Manchester United stoked anxiety among fans and had City smelling blood, Liverpool rattled through the gears and put out a resounding statement. It was a performance full of the energy, hunger and creativity which were lacking at Old Trafford as the Reds mercilessly exposed the gulf in class. Jurgen Klopp's side were superb virtually to a man, meaning we have an embarrassment of riches in the MOTM discussion. The defence secured its sixteenth clean sheet …

Player ratings as Reds rout Watford

That was alright, wasn't it? Manchester City can take their dodgy penalty, 1-0 win. I'll have five fabulous goals served up by those beautiful men in red, keeping us top of the table and dreaming for a few more days at least. Everton at Goodison on Sunday will offer more of a challenge, however that is tomorrow's focus. Tonight, sleep easy thinking about that league table. Hat-trick for TAA Alisson Becker (7): Another clean sheet, is it? 3-0 up and he …
A brief glimpse of Naby Keita's brilliance

A brief glimpse of Naby Keita's brilliance

I despised football when the final whistle blew at West Ham. More points dropped in the Premier League title race, but more worryingly a limp performance by Liverpool, who looked anything but a team trying to go five points clear at the top. In any normal season, a draw at West Ham in February would be no great disaster, but with Man City hunting the Reds down in their own relentless fashion, it felt like a defeat on the penultimate …
Title hopes Hammered as Liverpool draw 1-1 in London.

Title hopes Hammered as Liverpool draw 1-1 in London.

Remember the sweet tranquility of those 1-0 snooze-fests that we used to complain about early in the season? How much would you give for a few of those now? Jurgen Klopp set Liverpool up with a few surprises. Gini Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson were absent with injuries, leaving a skeleton crew with Adam Lallana starting in midfield and James Milner at right-back. A strong enough eleven none the less, embarked on an up and down affair with both teams getting …
